Shiniest Objects: Like New Again

That’s much better, our headline sharing feed is fixed so we thought we’d over share this week. Of course, Gamescon drove a lot of headlines with hands-on previews, trailers, and release date announcements. 2011 is going to finish with a flourish. We tried to keep up by getting our game on here as 4 reviews across 4 different platforms went live.

Every day we are on the look out for the most interesting news items in the gaming industry. Some make it on the site as headlines, and the articles that just miss the cut end up in the Shiny Objects feed which can be viewed here (or on the sidebar of the site) and subscribed to here. Every Monday we recap the shiniest of the objects, and our original articles from the previous week.
